The Carrie dress

Tulle Strappy Midi Dress – Topshop

Necklace – Topshop

Heels – Primark

Oh Topshop, why do you do this to me?! I simply popped in for a new nail polish yet as I made a beeline for the till, I spotted this little number hanging beautifully in the corner. I couldn’t resist the soft jersey material, adorable tulle skirt and delicate grey shade so I swiftly tried it on and fell in love with it instantly. A tad quirky and incredibly versatile to wear with statement jewellery and bold accessories, it automatically reminded me of a Carrie Bradshaw piece. This is why I have coined it the Carrie dress and I really felt like I could have been on 5th Avenue as I strolled out to lunch yesterday in this outfit with the Carrie curls and colourful shoes to match…although sadly mine weren’t Manolos!

ps. A little birdie has informed me that they do this dress in a gorgeous pinky-nude colour as well (swoon here) so I obviously have to get this one too, right?! 🙂

    Lovely dress I've been eyeing it up on the Topshop website. This is rather off topic but I was seriously spooked when reading a little about you as I also am a left handed veggie with curly hair, devoted to my 3 cats – CRAZY!! So glad I stumbled across your blog 🙂

    This looks so easy to DIY, just buy a body con midi dress and either make a tulle skirt or buy a cheap one on ebay! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I saw you post about this on Instagram and went in search online for it! I think I'll need to buy this in the future as it really is like something Carrie Bradshaw would wear!
